QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – A popular morning coffee shop just south of Boston is making a plea to its customers.

Coffee Break Café has become another victim of an upside-down Covid supply chain. The shop is struggling to source their 24-ounce, medium cups, which also happen to be their most popular size.

Donny Ormond, owner of the cafe’s five locations in Quincy, Milton and Hyde Park, explained the international causes behind the shortage.

“In Canada they have the raw materials, they just don’t have the people to run the machines.”

Ormond said China factors in as well.

“A shipping container that used to cost about $4,000 now it’s about quadruple that.”

Ormond, an environmentalist at heart, does not want to resort to the use of Styrofoam cups. He said he widely encourages customers to bring their own mugs into the shops next time they pop in.
